  1. Do you have a lot of Debt to pay off

    I owe absolutely nothing for the ADN I just completed. Not one cent. Get a job. Save. Go slowly if you have too.
  2. "Too many" nursing programs?

    I'm concerned and I have a right to be! I'm at a good CC with a good reputation. But there are so many crappy ADN programs out there turning out students who've had horrible clinical experience and just aren't ready that now every hospital system i...
  3. Reciting nurse's pledge question

    I have the opposite problem, and I'm also at a state run facility with no faith/religion. Ours read as some nebulous statement about "I pledge myself to All Higher Beings." Well the bottom line is that I do not pledge myself to ALL HIGHER BEINGS. ...
  4. I graduated!!!

    I'm done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :w00t::w00t::w00t::w00t::w00t: I graduated from my nursing program - I am COMPLETELY DONE. For those of you thinking you'll never get there, stick with it, you will! I'm still...
  5. It's a matter of being organized. Make a sheet yourself - everything you'll cover in report. Go by system or by topic or whatever makes sense to YOU. Make an SBAR box on there somewhere. Write down important stuff. You are not a computer, you ca...
  6. MMR/ Hep B vaccines

    As far as I'm aware, the only combo for MMR is an addition of varicella, called ProQuad.
  7. "There's nothing worse than a FAT nurse!"

    That was an obnoxious comment. His filter is broken. Or he thinks he's above a filter. MANY people have this opinion, not just your doctor. This is such a sensitive area for people that they immediately default into a defensive posture when it com...
  8. Pregnancy: Before or After Nursing School

    You will be nurse for a few decades - a parent for your entire life. There is absolutely nothing that comes before your family and children. You can drop out and re-enter, or start over if you need to. Many of my classmates have had children thro...
  9. Med math test at start of nursing school?

    The kind of math you need for nursing is super super basic. Just make sure your answer makes sense, and that your conversions are correct. Know how to go from grams to mg, etc. And know that the DOSE is the amount of medication (mg) NOT the volume...
  10. Best degree for APN interested in arts in medicine

    You really need to step back at this and take another look at art therapy. What you are describing basically leaves you doing activities using art. That's fine, if that will be enough for you. But if you really want to use art as the medium to dri...
  11. Nursing student afraid of urinary catheters!

    I have never had this skill in clinical either. I think that having somebody who's a little worried about it is a better situation. Speaking as a patient, caths hurt like hell and I've never come out of the hospital without a UTI from it. So I'd ...
  12. Why is there so much rudeness?

    There's an ignore button!? Where!?
  13. Good resources for lung and heart sounds?

    Make it known to the other students in your clinical group that you are looking for examples of heart/lung sounds. Chances are good that you'll encounter many of them in clinical, especially lung sounds. Most patients are OK with another student co...
  14. Why is there so much rudeness?

    I've noticed it too. And you are right, some posters are just plain rude. It makes you wonder how these people plan on being nurses and communicating with patients who have far less knowledge and much less ability to understand their medical proble...
  15. No Car for Nursing School- Urban Area- Am I doomed?

    I have driven other students who live around me to clinicals every term except for the first. Ask around and see who lives near you, and then talk to the person who does scheduling about placing you at the same site. Or talk to the scheduler and r...
